Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0917082A2] A card reader for reading the data recorded in an IC card comprises a front case (12a) having a substrate and an inner panel (18) mounted thereto, and a rear case (12b) detachably mounted to the front case (12a). A plurality of claws (21a to 21e and 22a to 22e), which can be engaged with each other, are formed at the peripheral portions of the front case (12a) and the rear case (12b) so as to permit the rear case (12b) to be detachable from the front case (12a). The particular construction makes it possible to renew batteries (V1, V2) and to wash contact pins (16a, 16b) forming contact points with the IC card. <IMAGE>
